Abstract: Cybercrime has recently surpassed all other forms of crime in the United Kingdom, and has been acknowledged as a national priority. The purpose of this research is to analyse the cyber-investigation lifecycle: from the experience of the public when reporting cybercrime to call takers, through to the attending officers, officer(s) in charge, and the many units and roles  involved in supporting cybercrime investigations. A large scale needs assessment was conducted within one of the largest police forces in England and Wales, involving focus groups and interviews with police staff and strategic leads across key units and roles. The results of the needs assessment document the current  state of policing cybercrime in a UK police force, along with the improvements and needs that exist across the force and in specific units and roles. In total 125 needs were identified and further coded based on a thematic analysis. Common themes identified include: knowledge/training, communication, recording, software, roles, governance, procedures, resources, consistency, staffing, national input, face-to-face, interactions with the public, new capabilities, and triage. The most common needs were related to training and knowledge, communications, quality of recording, software, governance, procedures, resourcing, and national input. Due to the nature of the findings, it is likely that these may apply nationally, and this work can be used to reflect on the potential for related issues in other police contexts.
